The texture is slightly rougher than the original, but not bad at all. Right after you spray it and it dries, it's a little crunchy because of the paint. However, after you sit on it or rub it a little bit it goes back to its normal texture.
My only concern is that the paint may fade in the sun with time. I guess only time will tell...
Black Dye? I've never heard of anyone dying their carpet. How do you do this?
Haha, I get the same reaction every time I tell people I spray painted my carpet. I thought it was weird too when I first heard about it. But after reading other peoples posts it looked like the Duplicolor Vinyl and Fabric paint did a good job with carpet and other interior surfaces.
I tried dying some carpet a few years back. It did not work out very good. If you got it wet it would rub off on your hand. When you tried to clean it would rub off also. I think paint would hold up better.
Converted a bronco II red interior to black. Used the paint that was actually designed for carpets. The top looked good, but unless you used a brush to massage in the paint eventually you are going to see grey. shouldnt be too bad though with grey, red wasnt a pretty picture. took alot of cans to get it just right.

I used Duplicolor Fabric and Vinyl paint on my sun visors. I WILL NEVER USE IT AGAIN. It's got a nasty crunchy texture and the more you rub it, the more the color comes off. So now I have black sun visors which are fading back to light grey. I will definitely spend the time and money to find actual black dye and do it properly next time. My 2c.
